    I'm surprised to see that usman throws more per minute, statistically he is the better striker on paper.
    I think usman wins and pretty easily maybe fades just a little in the last round but otherwise he just seems like the better fighter, just compare the RDA fight. RDA was competitive in the clinch with colby meanwhile Usman just manhandled him there. Let's not forget he dominated Woodley with a broken fucking foot.

    Throwing more strikes per minute means you are the better striker? MMA fans have brain damage

    That 1 percent takedown accuracy advantage for Colbu will pay dividends in this contest.

    Usman looked superhuman against Woodley. Guess it depends what your opinion on what version of Woodley showed up that night.

    Sometimes you have to join the dots for idiots.

    Colby has terrible striking, but his strongest asset is throwing volume. Therefore against usman his strongest asset is outmatched.

    No its not. This stat counts ground strikes as well. If you watch either of their fights you can see that Colby has higher volume on the feet

    If Kamara Lands 4.2 per minute and his accuracy is 57% then that means he throws 7.77 strikes per minute. (4.2/57)*100 = 7.7777

    If Colby lands 3.9 at an accuracy of 37% then that means he throws 10.54 strikes per minute. (3.9/37)*100 = 10.5405

    Colby throws more strikes than Kamara. LOL at not being able to do MMA Math

    Fact of the matter is that it's not how many punches you throw, but how many you land. And how hard they are when they land.
    Nobody who has watched those two fight would say Colby has a striking advantage.

    Colby game plan is based on spamming strikes and take-down attempts and using his Cardio to keep it up until the end of the fight when he can get a decision win.

    Kamara's game plan is to fight safe at all times and use his power to inflict damage with strikes for a T/KO or hold the other guy down to the mat until the clock runs down and he gets a default decision win.

    Same Woodley as always that fought Usman. He wouldn't have looked much different against Colby either.

    Those types of fighters will beat Woodley almost every time.

    Is Colbu Colby's Japanese cousin or alter ego?

    Those stats are mostly composed of 3 round fights.

    just so everyone debating what TS said about Usman "throwing more" knows... the stat sheet he presented said that Usman's "significant strike" count (strikes he landed) is higher than Colby's too. Okay... carry on.
